Hello to you all, and thank you for your patience.  I am a little off schedule this week, because as I expected, life got in the way of the weekend.  Not to fear, I will be back on schedule for the upcoming week, and plan to post my next Trust Your Gut on time and on schedule.

I am going to keep this short as it is now Tuesday.  Canada Day was Saturday, and there were festivities all over the country.  There were public events, and house parties from one end of the country to the other.  I wore my red summer top and Nova Scotia Hoodie with the Cape Breton patch I sewed onto it myself.

Sunday was my birthday.  I turned 43, and it had a few little surprises.  I was with my family, and that in itself was really special.  There are 5 of us, my parents, and my two sisters and myself.  My sisters have their families with them.  We live in different parts of Canada, and we have not all been together in the same place at the same time in 4 years.  I am getting ready for another family gathering tonight, and I had some help today making deviled eggs and big mac salad for the evening.

Pete Luckett’s Phone Book White and the bottle of Bodacious Smooth White wines were lovely at the gatherings we have been to so far.

I will say that this past weekend was another win for me, and I am still working on winning the whole week long!  I am taking the time I have this week to be thankful for my family and friends, and enjoying the memories I am making.  What did you do this past weekend?
